DIY Men's Best Grooming Tips

Amaya Determann and Mehrien Sultana

Guys, we're seeing a shift in the world of grooming. Gone are the days of limited options and a one-size-fits-all approach. Today, men are embracing a more personalized touch to their appearance, and the rise of DIY grooming routines is leading the way. 

Whether you're looking to cover greys, experiment with a bold new hair color, or achieve that perfectly sculpted beard – you can do it all from the comfort of your own home.  

Here at Godefroy, we're empowering men to take charge of their look with high-quality, easy-to-use grooming products. In today's blog, we'll be your guide to achieving salon-worthy results at home. Let's get started.  

Beard Color At Home 

Let's talk about the elephant in the room – finances! Salon hair coloring can be a significant expense, with prices ranging from $50 to $200+ depending on location, stylist experience, and desired results. This can quickly add up, especially if you require regular touch-ups or frequent coloring sessions. 

 Here's where DIY grooming shines. This high-quality, at-home beard coloring kit from Godefroy costs significantly less than a single salon visit. While the initial investment in a good kit might seem higher, it translates to significant savings in the long run. Whether you need to cover up patchiness in your facial hair or color stubborn grey roots, Godefroy has the product for you.

Convenience: Your Time, Your Terms 

Beyond cost savings, DIY grooming offers unmatched convenience. Say goodbye to scheduling appointments around a salon's availability or waiting in the lobby. With DIY grooming, you're in complete control of your time. Color your hair and facial hair on your own schedule, whether it's an evening at home or a quiet weekend morning.  

Relax, put on some music, and enjoy the self-care ritual of coloring your hair in your own space.

Hair Coloring At Home 

Various shades of hair color

Skin Tone:  Warmer skin tones often pair well with golden or auburn hues, which add warmth and vibrancy to the face. Cooler skin tones complement ash or cool brown shades, creating a more sophisticated and balanced look. Remember, this applies to eyebrow tinting as well! 

Hair Type:  Fine hair can handle lighter shades beautifully, as it won't appear weighed down. Coarse hair can take on darker tones without looking too heavy, and it can even help add texture and volume.  

Natural Hair Color: Consider your starting point as this will affect how the color takes. Lighter hair will take on the color easier and achieve brighter results, while darker hair might require bleaching beforehand to achieve lighter shades. Bleaching can be a more complex process, so if you're unsure, opt for a shade a few tones darker than your natural color for a more foolproof result.

Here comes the exciting part

Root Touch Ups  

If you're simply covering grays, start by tackling your roots first: 

Using the applicator brush, carefully apply the color mixture to your root area, focusing on areas with the most grays. Work in small sections for better control and ensure all grays are covered.
